Try Thompson Enamel, Inc. According to latest catalog it now
comes in an easier to use format (Thompson used to sell it as an
ingot!) Ph: 606-291-3800 Be warned that the melting point of IT
is practically that of silver (IT is extremely hard solder).
Enamelists have used it because it usually does not oxidize
readily when subjected to reheating in a kiln, which is important
when doing plique a jour technique.
Frei Borel and Indian Jewelry Supply both carry “IT” silver
solder. Or you can make your own by combining 9 grams of fine
silver with one gram of copper…

I was just in Seattle and bought several strips of IT from TSI.
IT is also available from Thompson Enamels. If you need the
address, contact me and I’ll look it up.
